Dancing Threads Art Quilt Show at Porterville College

 These amazing local artists have created some beautiful quilted art pieces.
(Forgive my lousy photography.)
Visit the Porterville College Art Gallery to truly appreciate the art.


 I feel so honored to have them use fabric & other pretties from Calico Mermaid. Some have taught or attended classes at our shop & I am so excited to be a teensy little part of their creative process.

Isn't this new Calico Mermaid bag just the best? 
I love how well it turned out!
Here's how to earn your very own
(limited edition) 
Fifth Friday Bag:
1. Spend $100 for merchandise before Thanksgiving 2015 to earn your very own bag...
(keep your receipts & let them add up - but remember supplies are limited!)
2. Bring in your bag on every Fifth Friday in 2016 to receive 
25% off 
all the regularly priced merchandise you can stuff into your adorable zipped up bag!
What fun! 
I told you so! 
I wouldn't call it Fifth Friday Fun if it really wasn't! 
You know me better than that by now, don't you?!
Here's the fine print: 
No Sand Dollar punches on your Fifth Friday purchases
No additional discounts on your Fifth Friday purchases
How many Fifth Fridays are there in 2016 anyway?
I'm so glad you asked...
